    No, it doesn't. It leads to the question, "Are you comfortable with setting the precedent that rights can be taken away without due process?" Even if you say yes in this case, that's not how precedent works. You can wail about how someone needs to think of the children all you like, but we're not talking about that. At all. Even a little. It's a distraction from the actual issue if I'm being kind.

    The only action that a pedophile can take that I would agree with, is to shoot themselves in the head in order to remove their disgusting existence from our society. Fuck "tolerance". Evil can't be tolerated, and must be eradicated.

    What if a person that you thought was evil didn't want to be. They wanted help. This person approached the normal channels for such help and was turned away or imprisoned, so others that similarly wanted help never even tried. Can't you see that you're creating more "evil" by not attempting to help people?

    One problem with Political Correctness falling out of fashion is I've no idea if this is genuine homophobia or some sort of joke.

    Pedophilia is the sexual attraction to children, it's not the sexual abuse or use (Consumption, is the legal term) of child pornography or any child sexual related activities. It's hardwired into them just as much as your sexual attractions are hardwired into you.

    Being a pedophile isn't an issue, acting on those urges is. Those who suffer from pedophilia (And I do mean suffer) should be able to seek help without being made out as the most vile of scum. If they've used, or watched or engaged in any activity sexually with a child, that's a different matter of course.

    What you hate are child predators. Not pedophiles.

    so are you claiming it is a right for an admitted pedophile to be allowed to work around children if he so chooses to?

    Honestly, I would say its people with your mindset who should be isolated on an island and just left. First of all, a pedophile is Not a rapist. They are not evil. Their existence is not disgusting. They have done nothing wrong. Its like any other sexual orientation, they cannot help it.

    I honestly think our society needs to focus on helping them rather than persecuting them and acting like a barbarian such as the person I quoted. Instead of helping them fight their urges, they are now running around having to try, and failing at times, to control their urges. They need help. Acting as if they are inherently evil doesn't help the matter, it just makes it worse.

    You don't look at someone who has an illness and tell them go somewhere else. That might spread it and cause more harm. Its the same thing here. Help them to lower any chances that they will turn into a rapist or harm anyone.

    Yes. They are Not a rapist. They have committed no crimes. In some cases, when someone is afraid of something, exposure is actually the best cure.

    I see their concerns though. Pedophiles are sexually attracted to children, and children are quite vulnerable and often easily influenced. Allowing a pedophile to work with children puts extreme temptation on their plate, and won't help with their condition at all. I agree though, we should take a "Help them" rather than "Kill them" approach, but one step at a time.

    Allowing them to work with kids is too risky.

    I'm telling you that you would never know if they didn't tell you anyway. This is a person that has not committed a crime. Do you really want to be in the business of punishing people that aren't actually guilty of anything? I thought we "SJW's" were supposed to be the facist thought police.

    Maybe when they are in recovery. They will be exposed to children. In a place with cameras and surveillance, they will be able to be monitored. I do understand their fears, but a lot of it stems from misinformation.

    why would a pedophile want to work around children if they don't want to act on the pedophilia why would they want that temptation
    it word be the same as a recovering alcoholic wanting to be a bartender

    They very likely wouldn't. This is your hypothetical.

Mental disorders are usually associated with significant distress in social, occupational, or other important activities. An expectable or culturally approved response to a common stressor or loss, such as the death of a loved one, is not a mental disorder. Socially deviant behavior (e.g., political, religious, or sexual) and conflicts that are primarily between the individual and society are not mental disorders unless the deviance or conflict results from a dysfunction in the individual, as described above."

    Correct, that's the definition of dysfunction. However it should be apparent that this can just as easily be socially relative - the reason the individual is stressed about their paraphilia is that it's socially unacceptable and the conflict may even be internalised.

    What is and is not a "mental disorder", and what a mental disorder even is, is subjective. Agencies like the AMA and manuals like the DSM make their own determinations based on their own views but none of this stuff is set in stone. It can change and has changed significantly, especially in the field of sexuality. What's to say pedophilia is any different?

    "shrug" Maybe they would view it as the most sure fire way to ensure that 1) they are cured and 2) they have the will power to resist.

    So you are just going to ignore the Constitutional problem you want to create to throw more inane hypotheticals at me?

    Whats the difference other than the fear created from probably being misinformed or thinking that because they are a pedophile that means they are automatically a rapist or will harm the children in some way.

    What I would NOT do: I would not accept this as perfectly normal "you love who you love" bullshit. I certainly would not write blogs to the world about how they should accept me because I embrace who I am and cannot change while spending all my free time jacking it to elementary school yearbooks.
    Sounds like one of those 'fix gays' camp

    Well said... but that doesn't make me think pedophiles are any less creepy.

    Having said that, so long as people aren't awkwardly bringing up the fact they are one in conversations and keeping it private I don't see how it could be a problem.
